Hi Mamas
I have a swollen lump in my breast. It feels like milk is in there and it is really full.
I hope it is not mastitis!
How do I get rid of it? I don't have a pump to get the excess milk out.

Thanks,
new to bf'ing

Hi,

It does sound like you might have a blocked milk duct or even mastitis. I think that it could be really useful to look at these articles on blocked ducts and mastitis and My breast hurts. What can I do?. The tips in these articles may help to deal with the infection yourself or to decide when you have to contact your doctor.
